Pinkbike Poll: Does the Current Method of Mountain Bike Classification Make Sense?
Although I understand every category, I think there could be a simpler way to explain it as (Soulrebel) prefaced: Since most technology trickles down from some form of racing or competition, those bikes are very dedicated to a performance outcome. We should have a Competition (RACE) vs None Competition (None RACE) separation. XC = race / Trail = not race Enduro = race / AM = not race DH = race / Freeride = not race *Yes, Freeride has become a competition (Rampage) but on DH bikes. But what about: BMX & 4x = race / Dirt jump & Street = not race Slope Style = competition / Park = None competition **Yes, there is contest in DJ, Street, & Park but mainly using a bike evolved from its racing/competition designed brother At the end of the day we have all of these categories out of demand and it will continue to have blurred lines but we could definitely use some level of simplification and standardization in this ever evolving industry... Just my thoughts.

Pivot's New Carbon and Alloy Enduro Bikes - First Look
@pivotcycles: Hi Chris, I am a huge fan of the previous Firebird model having owned a couple as well as other DW suspension bikes. But I am curious as to why you got away from the floating shock design? From all of my experience on DW or VPP designs, the Firebirds floating shock design was the best feeling suspension of the bunch. Thanks

Pivot's New Carbon and Alloy Enduro Bikes - First Look
Roger dat, I think the older Firebird with the floating shock had the best suspension design in their line based on my experience of owning several different models from them....

Pivot's Shuttle eMTB - First Look
@Thustlewhumber: Yes, and Strava in and of itself is pretty lame. If you want to crush it against other people then show up at a race and do so. First of all, strava isn't very accurate and it's not under the same conditions as a competitive race. Yet, Stava people have the nerve to criticize other technologies. Put your phone away and be a true rider, one with nature. In fact, don't even drive to your next ride, go straight from your house and be the hardcore rider you speak of...

Pivot's Shuttle eMTB - First Look
@randybadger: Spot on mate... It's the same type of fools that said snowboarding is stupid on the ski slopes... Look at it now... X Games/Olympics/Professionals... Chris said it very clearly "Pivot is technology, engineering and innovation driven BIKE company." WHY BE IN BUSINESS TO FAIL? That's why the direct to consumer model is so effective yet killing the bike shops. The model was created primarily because bikes shops in general was failing to adapt to the needs of their customers/consumers. Hence, a huge slump in the industry for many years with many companies closing doors because of their inability to adapt. Good on ya Chris and the whole Pivot Cycles Team.

Rachel Atherton Injured in Fort William
@kubaner: That's is what I was thinking... For example, when a fighter has to pull out of a fight because of injury during training, it doesn't reflect on their record as a loss. Why people saying end to a dominant run. She has to race to be beat, just my thought...
